I generally do: webpage, SEO, academic, creative, and content writing; proofreading and editing for both authors and academics.
Specialities: Emotional intelligence. Getting things done quickly & without fuss. Working well with people. Flexibility. Picking things up quickly. Self-managing and self-teaching.
:: Professional writing and editing since Nov 2011 with repeat customers.
:: 7 years on the front-line in the health and social care industry - I know how people tick and I know how to be persuasive!
:: 3 years of academic writing, leading to a First-class Philosophy degree - I know how to make a coherent argument and explain complex things in simple terms.
My experiences come together to form informative and engaging narrative. I'm always on the look-out for opportunities to use my creativity, ingenuity and enthusiasm, preferably to help others.
In my spare time, I study language, teaching & writing. To relax, I run a board games group & make things but mostly enjoy combining a good book with a good drink.

Summary: In 2007, I looked down at my filing during my office job and thought 'What the hell am I doing?'. Five years previous, I had left my teaching degree, unsure of what was the right path to choose in life. Meanwhile, my friends around were gaining their degrees and seeming all the better for it - more educated, more confident. I thought I didn't want or need one.
I was wrong. My time spent studying Philosophy, Ethics and Cultural STudies has been one of the best I've ever had so far. It turns out I'm actually very good at these subjects and my writing is excellent. It turns out I am as clever as I'd always secretly hoped I was. It had always been evident in how easy I found basic office jobs and things like that but there's something about a string of high grades to really ram it home.
My dissertation was on the impact of the internet on our interaction with knowledge and how this has changed the way that we use irony in everyday life. In Year 2, I completed a half-dissertation in Year 2 on aesthetic theories in relation to artistic authenticity.
Other modules studied include Western analytical, Indian and Chinese philosophies, sociological health studies, Western philosophical thinkers and the application of their theories, an understanding of the interaction between drugs, alcohol and culture and philosophical studies of love, desire, evil and wickedness.
Now, one first-class B.A. later, I am raring to go. I am a lovely writer, good at researching and finding information, very sharp and bright and very capable of the tasks you will set me.
Degree: 1:1 in B.A. (Hons.)
Field of Study: Philosophy, Ethics and Cultural Studies
University / College: Bath Spa University

Excellent again. And she is a really fast learner too. Highly recommended!
Sarah was an absolute star, she was thrown a rather thickish, technical tome and made it glow with gorgeousness. DEFINITELY one to recommend, very easy to work with, great communication and an amazing eye for details.
Sarah is wonderful! She took the pressure of my shoulders! She is such an easy going and pleasure to work with! And she works fast and extremely hard. I can fully recommend her :-)
